Olivia Turner’s interdisciplinary practice encompasses sculpture, video, performance and drawing. Her work is deeply rooted within the idea of knowledge gained through making. She explores the communicative, pre-linguistic capacity and material memory of clay, and how it manifests itself in processes and objects. She is hugely influenced by her research with the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB). Her most recent exhibitions include ‘Degree Show 2016,’ Newcastle University; ‘DECAPOD – AirSpace Gallery 10th Birthday,’ AirSpace Gallery, Stoke-on-Trent; and ‘Circus Between Worlds,’ Glasgow International. Olivia Turner is founder of the interdisciplinary research group Anatomy of Site, funded by Newcastle Institute of Creative Arts. She is also a member of the international collective Topographies of the Obsolete.
